(2) Terminal begins the transmit message process by determing if the message to be
transmitted is actually in message memory. If no such message, terminal responds as
follows: CR/LF (space) ERROR MSG. No. & CR/LF
Otherwise, terminal sends the beginning sequence of the transmit envelope (see
TENVELOPE command, Appendix G) followed by the text of the message.
(3) Based upon the position of the MODE Switch:
Terminal will transmit message characters.
Also transmits envelope sequence in Baudot or ASCII form.
(4) When a carriage-return is detected in the message:
Terminal will replace it with the characters of the end-of-line sequence.
(5) After the last character of the message text:
Terminal adds the characters of the closing sequence of the transmit envelope.
Message is then complete and the process is terminated.
(6) Message being transmitted is automatically printed out ("home copy") on the terminal:
If "home copy" is not needed, HLT key is pressed and printer stops printing.
Terminal continues to send message to distant station(s).
(7) Message transmission can be stopped anytime before a complete message has been
Activating the ABORT switch.
Both transmission and printing stop and the terminal returns to System Command
